Serenity Retreats Ireland
As your retreat director and residential host, Theresa Bourke is a down-to-earth, nurturing person who truly cares about and understands people. Theresa holds a Masters Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy, (amongst other post-graduate qualifications in education, music and public relations) and provides therapeutic residential retreats in a secluded haven set amongst lush green paddocks in the Irish countryside.
While focusing her early attention on her education and career she always felt drawn to the spiritual aspects of life, contemplation and reflection. Theresa started playing music at the age of 4 which led her down a life path she least expected or could have ever planned as an internationally performing traditional Irish musician with Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance World Tour, amongst other shows.
With over 15 years experience in running specialised music retreats in Ireland, she is an expert in hosting and guiding people on personal journeys, development and growth. As a cultured, global traveller and explorer she gained insights into world cultures and traditions. She lost count at 50 countries!
Ultimately, it is her musical talent and mature, therapeutic nature that directed her on a journey into Talking Therapy, Sound Therapy and hosting residential retreats for people from all walks of life seeking wellness after times of adversity.
Theresa innately understands how to enable people to access life at a deeper, more meaningful level through a combination of talking therapy, sound therapy, nature, mindfulness and meditation. Her own life experience and personal growth journey led her to sharing her gift of music and therapy with others through Serenity Retreats Ireland and her Serenity Sound Academy.
The warm hand of friendship and welcome will be extended to you by Theresa and her intimate group of experienced, wise people and teaching specialists you will encounter during your time at Serenity Retreats Ireland.
We have created a variety of retreat offerings so as to maximise guest experiences during their time with us. We can also create bespoke retreats including other holistic therapies for your needs, depending on availability and suitability.
